Straddling the Universe

Straddling the Universe

Did you know that you are taller than the highest skyscraper?

We think that we end at the top of our heads, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Every person is like a tower that stretches from the heavens to the earth.

The Zohar teaches that the body is the shoe of the soul. This means that just like your shoe covers a very small part of your body, so too, your body covers only a tiny percentage of your soul.

Our holy Torah teaches that there are five levels to the soul. Three of those levels exist inside your body, while the other two transcend your physical self and go all the way up to the heavenly Throne of Glory.

In other words, we start on earth and stretch to the heavens. Or put another way…

Every person straddles the universe.

That means that every good thing you do impacts and reverberates throughout creation…

Even the coin you put into a charity box when you’re all alone.

But there’s another side to the picture. When we only channel our greatness to make a name for ourselves, we become scattered and everything falls apart.

That’s because our expansive being longs to express itself expansively.

So, the next time you look in the mirror, know that you’re bigger than you think. 

And now that you know that everything you’re doing is already impacting the world…

How do you want to impact the world?
